My Sony Ultimate TV PVR has been having some problems lately. Recorded shows sometimes freeze momentarily, break up on screen with lots of weird distortion and noise, the sound sometimes drops out and in general it's just not working perfectly like it did before.

Anyone have any ideas on how to restore this unit to it's previously perfect condition? I'm hoping there is a soft reset or some kind of maintenance that I can do to make it better.

You'll find a LOT of help over on the UltimateTV message board (on this very site), but a quick thing to try is to pull the power plug from the UTV and leave it out for several minutes.

Put the power plug back in, and see if that helps. If not, pull ALL cables loose from the unit (even the satellite in RG-6 cables) and let it sit overnight. In the morning, plug in everything and test again.

If none of this works, you may have a hard drive going bad.
